One of my favourite cardigans – this grey silk cashmere Wilfred cardigan from Aritzia.
Boots: Michael Kors
Jewelery: Black beaded necklace – Nordstrom Rack, Pendant necklace and ring – Tiffany & Co, Bracelet – random discount cart somewhere in NYC
The cardigan is from Aritzia’s exclusive line, Wilfred. For readers in the US, Aritzia is planning a full-scale roll-out across the US. Read about it here. I purchased the cardigan last winter and I love it! Why do I love this cardigan so much you ask? Here’s why.
- It fits great, just like everything from Aritzia. Sleeves are the perfect length. No excessive extra space in the arms. My cardigan is size XXS.
- The pockets are big. And there are 2 of them!
- Its not itchy. The material is 55% silk, 40% cotton, and 5% cashmere.
- There is some piling but for the frequency that I wear it, I consider it minimal. Luckily piling is not too visible on the grey colour. See photo below.
However this cardigan wasn’t cheap. I don’t remember the exact price, it was at least $100, likely closer to $150 before taxes, can’t remember the exact price, and it wasn’t on sale when I bought it. But it was worth the purchase. At the end of the winter season I’m planning to go back to Aritzia and see if they have similar cardigans on sale.
The shirt I’m wearing is also from Wilfred. Its also sized XXS, but I wished it was a bit tighter. The length of the shirt is great, just past my hips – its hard to find shirts that don’t look ridiculously oversized on petites!
